May 21, 2019 - Wisconsin Dells

It took a long time to get through Chicago on the Kennedy Expressway. But, we finally made it and drove to the Country Roads Campground in Lake Delton, WI. On Wednesday afternoon we took the Original Dunes Duck Tour. We last took this tour about forty years ago. Even though it was a repeat, we had a good time. After the tour we found the Ishnala Supper Club on Mirror Lake for a rare upscale dinner. We had a nice meal and met a nice waitress, Firuza, from Kasakhstan. On Thursday we drove to Baraboo to visit the Circus World Museum. This...

Jul 18, 2016 - Lost Canyon in the Dells

Lost Canyon by Horse and Carriage About the Canyon - It was back in 1956 that Dr. R.O. Ebert started the horse-drawn wagon tours through Lost Canyon, the longest and deepest land canyon in Wisconsin. In 1967, the Kissack families took over the business and still operate it today, doing their part to maintain this natural treasure. Visitors ride through a mile of cliff-walled gorges in comfortable yet quaint horse-drawn carriages. At the narrowest passages, the guides must talk the horses through the tight squeeze. In some of the deeper...

Aug 18, 2015 - Great Wolf Lodge - Wisconsin Dells, WI

We left for Wisconsin Dells at about 9:30 am. We traveled very straightforward expressway for about 71/2 hours with 2 quick restroom/gas stops. I had made lunch to eat in the car. I am amazed at how well the girls are doing in the car! We did schoolwork first thing, watched "How to Train Your Dragon", technology, played travel games ("Ding" and "Cities,States and Countries") and the last hour we started listening to CS Lewis's "The Magician's Nephew". I am hooked! We arrived at Great Wolf Lodge at 5:00 but BONUS we went through a time...

Jul 10, 2015 - Day 3

Do you remember your first RV? I doubt it was a 1941 Scotty or one of the other numerous vintage recreational vehicles on display in the RV/MH Hall of Fame and museum in Elkhart, IN. Vivian and I spent an hour marveling at the displays. One that pleased us was a Jayco pop-up from the late 1960s that was very similar to our first camper. But this Jayco had a full kitchen while ours only had a table and benches. We still had to use an ice chest, a Coleman stove and we heated water to wash dishes in plastic dish pans. Leaving the museum we...

May 29, 2014 - Short Drive... long day...

I'm always one park behind on the pictures for some reason... ;> These are the ones from the LaSalle IL park... there was a secluded area across the little creek and up the hill where that cabin was... would be a wonderful spot to spend a week or two someday! Weather has been great and this is the last leg of the 'rush'. Now we'll have a few days in Maple Grove to get our land legs back. It sounds goofy when we get tired just driving a few hundred miles a day but it wears us all out! Using Interstates like this it would definitely be...

Sep 19, 2013 - A rain day

Today we left Pipestone MN. We left early to try to out run a heavy thunderstorm. Unfortunately, we hit a detour that took us directly into the storm. It was, by far, the worst storm that I have ever driven through. We were on farm roads with no place to turn off and a line of vehicles behind me because of the detour. We finally got through that storm and got out in front of a line of storms that we raced east all the way to Wisconsin. Tonight, we are in the Wisconsin Dells at the Ho Chunk Casino and the storms have caught up to us. They...
